ok so i sold my shadow strike topload stem to my friend yesterday cause im buyin a new frontload stem. my friend let me use his eastern stem til i got my new one. he had the stem for a couple months. i rode yesterday and it was fine. rode today and jus did a lil hop over a cynder block, off a sidewalk. landed and all i heard was a loud cracking sound. heres the results.
sorry about the shitty pics.

SCROLL DOWN MORE FOR PICS OF IT BROKEN!

the crack on the bottom goes all the way through so i guess it would be broken. the top part is jus cracked

It's deff a stock stem, but I can't say I have seen one crack there before. Chances are it might have been cracked before and whatever you did that made the noise was the straw that broke the camel's back.

If you really ride, a forged stem isn't going to work at all. Hopefully your new stem shows up so you can shred

Stems take a lot of abuse if you think about it, not a bad idea to get a new one every year
